The Evanston History Center invites you to take a narrated tour through the history of the railroads, street railways, electric lines, and electric interurban that have served Evanston over the years.
The tour will be conducted on a chartered CTA train comprised of vintage 1970s equipment. We’ll ride the Purple Line to and from the Loop with a side trip on the Yellow Line.
While we are riding, Graham Garfield and Bruce Moffat, experts from the Shore Line Interurban Historical Society, will narrate Evanston’s rail-transit history and relate it to sites on the trip. Shore Line is the authoritative source for Chicagoland rail-transit history, publishing the journal First and Fastest and other special studies.
